Yesterday I had a reminder of why it is not always a good idea to call back a potential client three hours after they left the message!

I had a voicemail on my phone from 2pm which said 'please call back, I would like to make a booking'.

I could not call back as I was busy and called at about 4.45pm. A male voice answered the phone and I said 'Hi John (made up name :P), this is Pia'.. There was a silence, then the guy said 'oh, that is my dad, I will just get him' :) Flipping heck, that threw me out big time, I waited but just felt incomfortable and I then hung up.

Not like you to lose your near-Scandinavian cool, Pia.

But your words on the phone were completely neutral and the son's words so completely unexpected, I would have been stumped I admit.

Can't quite recreate the conversation that led the son to be able to answer like that unless he said he was expecting a call from his new secretary about a change in fire regulations...

Well the fella asked you to call him back, his fault that he left his phone.

I'm sure he'll be more discreet in the future! It's a nice image of the son walking up to his dad to tell him you're on the phone...

We had a call recently where a client called from his work phone, and when we called back to confirm details of the booking it turned out to be some kind of open office phone system so one of his colleagues picked up. We were the epitome of discretion, of course.

Some punters are just so dumb. :)

I don't think I'd have rung back after 2 hours and 45 minutes, I'd have possibly sent a text asking 'Are you free, Jo?'

I know, I thought that too!

Some are not so experienced.

Ah yes, but I had a voicemail asking me to call back and I tend to call back if before 5pm as it is working hours. Son would have picked up the text too I would have thought.

I can understand why Pia was flummoxed but surely the son's reaction was quite natural; someone phoned expecting to speak to his dad - albeit with a strange foreign name! - and he just passed the message on.

Now had Pia also said something like "… when do you want to come and see me?" That would have been a cause for consternation!! :)

I'm assuming, since this occured yesterday, that he has not called you again?

Put that way, I see what you mean about the son's response. I didn't see it that way originally, putting myself in Pia's place (don't).

Yet we've had lots of complaints from punters on here that ladies have NOT rung or text them back, some hours afterwards. With a few getting the hump, or saying the lady is obviously useless.

If asked to call back I usually do but won't use names - I'll just say I'm ringing back as requested. If the wrong person answers I would then say "wrong number", assuming said chap has not got my number saved as "Cumbrian WG".

A few times recently guys have emailed asking me to call them. I always check the number from another phone and at least one of them had made a typo. Luckily the typo created a number that didn't exist, imagine if it had existed and I'd cheerily introduced my self as "Ruth of Kendal" - something I'd never do anyway, but not everyone might be that aware.

I have had a similar occurrence, except within called back within 15mins, and he had asked me to call him when I get this, except when I call back no reply, then get called back from his number, and it was his wife.

Kept my cool and mentioned it was a wrong number, but she'd obviously seen the phone log after we said bye and seen he has called me as well, so got numerous texts saying 'who are you really' etc, tut tut tut!!!

What a shame he missed having the time of his life with the best ever working girl..

Do him a favour and tell him about keeping a SIM card just for his hobby

There are a lot of ways it could have gone a lot worse.

"Hi John, this is Pia. It's £130 for an hour if you want to fuck me but I'm hoping to break in a new strap-on so I can give you a special deal if you like to take it up the shitter."

"Oh, hi Pia. My Dad told me he'd called you. We were wondering if you offered family discounts?"

We have had this before. If a guy leaves you a message that he wants to book you and asks you to call back then I believe you should not feel guilty if he screws the situation up. When you call,all you have to say is " I got a missed called from this no. " .If the punter answers the phone then there will be no problem he will suss it immediately.If someone else does and queries what your call is about ., you just say "must be a mis-dial" and hang up.!

A tough situation....he no doubt got an ear full at somepoint. Should teach him to get a separate phone or a less nosey wife :)

Ha ha, I said that to him when he called, seemed nice, if not a little silly, never met him though, and he soon deleted his profile...think he got caught out big stylee.

I never really ring back unless they've JUST rang me. Or I will text back without giving anything away like ''Hi, sorry I missed your call earlier I am free to talk now if you'd like to try again'' If they rang from a non-cell number I would wait til they rang again.

I did get another voicemail, he just said ' I believe you called and my son picked up' he did not sound too stressed about it :) Said he could not make it now and would try me again next week.

I like it :P

I have not got a choice but to call people back as I do not sit and wait for the phone to ring.. The chance of catching me on the phone is perhaps 1 in a 100 due to me running a full-time business besides escorting.

Hi Pia -for what it's worth i think you handled the situation admirably! In similar situations in the past I have received text messages back several hours after calling (even a whole day later in one case) and they can be quite indiscreet sometimes. Not a problem for me but could have been tricky for some. I'm always happier to hear back - even if it's delayed - than to not get a call or message back.

Yikes Angela -- congrats, they are pretty serious pics you have there.! Welcome to the board-- you are the first Canadian WG I have heard of.

Wonder why your outcall rates are lower than your incall.Is that a mistake ?

What is wrong with saying " This is Pia (or Miss Jones or Miss Denmark or whoever) - Just returning your call" ?

Nothing to question or be suspicious about - people return work calls every day. Why treat this any differently?
